Wolves and the Endangered Species Act are once again under serious assault. In the next two weeks, Congress will be considering no fewer than three separate bills to remove federal protection from wolves in the western Great Lakes states. If any of these bills become law, thousands of wolves will be cruelly killed by hunters and trappers. These cynical bills would not only harm wolves, but would weaken and undermine the Endangered Species Act itself, which is under attack as never before.

Please use our form to call your members in Congress and demand that they protect wolves and defend the Endangered Species Act.
